Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

The only one I would vote for is a roguelike, such as Nethack, which is on this list, but the last release was maybe 10+ years ago. I nominate Moria (also old but that finally had a a release that changed it to Free/Libre/Opensource lately) and its derivative Angband, and its popular derivatives Pernband/Tome2 & TomeNET. Also, consider Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup. All these four had recent updates. I would most want to vote for Angband or Tome 2, depending which was updated most recently. Years ago Tome 2 was Pernband, but got sued by Anne McCaffrey who wrote about her world, Pern, so the setting of the game was changed, and in some version of Tome2/TomeNET, it was Middle-Earth (so best not to call it Pernband in the voting, if added). There is also an experimental Tome 3 that never really got used much, and the current Tome 4, which I dislike, rather than Tome 2 being updated by other maintainers, such as Tome2-ah (by Anonymous Hero).
I don't really follow current affairs in Linux gaming. Not that it brought any major new developments to the table this year specifically, but I voted for nethack since it's really the only one of these I play regularly.
